I was raised in a small town in northeast Kansas. There were 27 students in my class from K-12th grade. I attended Kansas State University following high school.
Bachelor of Arts from Kansas State University
Master of Arts from Baker University
This is my third year of teaching at AMS, and my eighth in Andover Schools. Although my current position is 8th Grade Language Arts, I've taught all grade levels from 3-12th grade. I've taught in several school districts across the state, and I believe Andover is the best!
Before teaching at AMS, I taught 4th grade at Cottonwood. I have taught in Abilene, McPherson, and Garden City as well. This is my 27th year in the profession.
My own children are now adults. My son is 29 and my daughter is 25. Two years ago I was blessed with a granddaughter.
I love to read, write and dabble in art. I have published two books and hope to continue writing books after I retire.
